The Producers (2005): a Brilliant Idea

The clip a brilliant idea from The Producers (2005) with Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane

Now, let's see.
Let's see, if we add up these deductions, we get...
Carry the three, divide by four...
It's absolutely amazing, but...
...under the right circumstances...
...a producer could make more money with a flop...
...than he could with a hit.
Yes, it's quite possible. If he were certain that a show would fail...
...a man could make a fortune.
Yes, what?
What you were saying. Keep talking.
What was I saying?
You were saying that a producer...
...could make more money with a flop than a hit.
Well, yes. It's quite possible.
You keep saying that, but you don't say how.
Well, it's simply a matter of creative accounting.
Let's assume for a moment that you are a dishonest man.
Assume away.
All right. When you produced your last show, Funny Boy... raised $2000 more than you needed.
But you could've raised a million...
...put on your $100,000 flop and kept the rest.
But what if my show was a hit?
Then you would go to jail.
See, rather than 100 percent of the show... would've sold more than 1000 percent.
So if the show's a success, there's no way to pay off the backers.
Get it?
Got it.
So in order for our scheme to work, we'd have to find a sure-fire flop.
"Our scheme"? What scheme?
What scheme?
Your scheme, you bloody little genius.
I meant no scheme. I merely posed a little academic accounting theory.
It was just a thought.
...worlds are turned on such thoughts.
Don't you see, Bloom? Darling Bloom, glorious Bloom.
